    Great for these types of students

    Small town school Athletes Want to have a lot of friends Dorm Room living Religious Opportunities Volunteer Opportunities Different cultural experiences

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure that you like a small school. I don't know everyone by name but I at least know of them. It has a pretty campus and you can walk everywhere. It is about a seven minute walk through campus. It has intramural sports and is now starting a new JV team program for many sports, like baseball and basketball. The academics can be challenging but I have learned a lot since I have been attending WJU. I like most of my professors. They care about each student and want to help them as much as they can. There is very few people that live off campus. Most people live in the dorms all four years.

    Bang for the buck

    WJU gives out a lot of money if you have good grades and have a good ACT/SAT score. They also give some money if you are from a Catholic high school.

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy going to Wheeling Jesuit University. It gives students a great round perspective on many different things. There are cultural activities, service activities, athletic activities, retreats, volunteering, dances, planned trips, and so much more. The school encourages students to stay on campus on the weekends. The Jesuit tradition is a part of this school and they hope to encourage students to take part in it.

    Am learning a lot

    I am a health science major and are taking core classes and some science classes. WJU has a set of core classes that every student has to take. For example, psychology, philosophy, religion, history,math, and science.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is completely safe with security guards on the clock 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The campus is sort of secluded from the city of Wheeling and is like its own different place among the city.

    Greek Life

    There is no Greek Life, but there has been talk of trying to start it up.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are an abundance of clubs and activities and every person can find something that suits their interest. Many people find multiple clubs and activities that suit their interests!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is a last blast end of the year celebration every year that entails creating rafts to race down the creek that is behind the school and participate in many other activities to celebrate the end of the year. Also at the end of all the school dances the song Country Roads is played and all the students sing along to show pride for the school they go to located in Wheeling, Wes Virginia.

    Bang for the buck

    While the academics is rigorous and there is normally many activities to participate in, the expenses of the school are quite high and many students must work to afford it, even with many scholarships.

    What to do for fun

    There are sporting events that happen weekly that students are eligible to attend. Also all students have access to the indoor, in-ground pool, indoor and outdoor tracks, basketball courts, and gym filled with weights and multiple cardio options. There is also the option to walk or drive downtown or go to the highlands or ohio valley mall to go shopping or go to the parks around the area. There are normally plenty of things to do on the weekends, such as live entertainment in the Ratt, the on campus bar, every Friday and themed dances in the Ratt on many Saturdays.

    Food and Dining

    The food in the Benedum room is not the greatest, but they do try to make it enjoyable with a salad bar, pizza cooked in a brick oven everyday, a sandwich bar, along with the main entrees, and the access to get a burger and fries for many meals. There is breakfast, lunch, and dinner offered Monday through Friday, and brunch and dinner offered on Saturday and Sunday.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is awesome, you're going to want to keep your doors open your freshman year so that you can meet as many people as possible and make the connections that will last throughout your academic career at Wheeling Jesuit.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics at this liberal arts school is very competitive and challenging so be prepared for your core courses, as well as your major courses.

    Tips for prospective students

    For prospective students, you should try and become involved in as many clubs and activities as you can. There are many service related opportunities, as well as extracurricular activities. Make as many connections as you can and do not be afraid to ask your professors for help.

    In three sentences

    The environment is great, with a small classroom atmosphere. Most of the students are very involved and the professors are interested in the success and well-being of the students. Financial aid is given to almost all students, but the school is still expensive and academically challenging.

    Clubs and Activities

    Many different clubs are available, from service and leadership clubs, like Circle K, to clubs pertaining to majors and intended careers.

    Bang for the buck

    Though the school's size means individualized learning, it also leads to a lack of some programs. Likewise, while the academics are rigorous and there are many activities to take part in during one's free time, the expenses of the school are somewhat high. However, Jesuit is generous with scholarships, particularly if you did well on your ACT/SAT.

    What to do for fun

    Dances are held weekly, and other events are held regularly. There are also many things to do in the area.

    Food and Dining

    For a small campus, the variety is great. The quality is great as well.

    Dorm Life

    Some of the buildings are nicer while some are somewhat old. Freshman dorms tend to be communal. Many upperclassmen dorms have private bathrooms.

    Academic Rigor

    Varies from program to program and from teacher to teacher, but as a whole the school strives for academic excellence. The science and health care fields are particularly rigorous.

    Tips for prospective students

    Food and Dining

    I am an off campus student. I am not qualified to report on the food.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in a dormitory and cannot evaluate dorm life.

    Academic Rigor

    The coursework at Wheeling Jesuit is definitely challenging. Instructors expect college level work from all students in all classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Contact the financial aid office about locally funded scholarships. There are several unadvertised scholarships offered by local residents and businesses that are not found on college scholarship websites.
